Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), is a complex and debilitating medical condition that affects multiple systems in the body. It is characterized by severe, unexplained fatigue that is not alleviated by rest, and can be exacerbated by physical or mental activity.

Other symptoms of CFS/ME may include:

  • Cognitive difficulties, such as problems with memory and concentration
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Pain in muscles and/or joints
  • Headaches
  • Sore throat
  • Tender lymph nodes
  • Digestive issues

The cause of CFS/ME is still not fully understood, and there is no specific diagnostic test. Diagnosis is usually made based on a combination of symptoms and the exclusion of other possible medical conditions. The onset of CFS/ME is often triggered by an infection or other significant physical or emotional stressor.

Treatment for CFS/ME is focused on managing symptoms and improving quality of life. This may involve a combination of medications, such as pain relievers and sleep aids, as well as lifestyle changes, such as pacing activities and incorporating rest periods. There is currently no cure for CFS/ME, and recovery can be a long and challenging process.
